“A good place to stop on the Alcan Highway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2010

I have spent considerable time traveling the state and sometimes the accommodations can be more than rustic in rural Alaska. The Westmark is a pleasant surprise in this small rural community. It is about 4 hours to Fairbanks (more in bad weather), so Tok ends up being a good place to tie over. Note, however, that the hotel is not open past the summer season.

The room was very nice although dated but did have a coffee maker. And...it was clean. We had a room in the one story wing which had a beautiful wooded deck between the units. The front desk was very accommodating, polite and professional. Something you don't often see in this part of the state. It is a Holland America hotel, so I would ask for a room away from a tour group so you don't get woken up too early by others checking out. In any case, it is better than listening to people arguing in the parking lot at a less refined establishment.

We stayed at this hotel while traveling to Dawson City from Fairbanks. It is out in the middle of nowhere and not much to do other than a few gift shops and restaurants nearby. Our room was large with a king size bed, there was also a coffee pot and blow dryer provided in the room. We stayed in a pet friendly room with our small dog. The room was very clean and did not really smell of animals which was nice. The hotel was very quiet and the staff was friendly. The restaurant left something to be desired with a fairly limited menu and so so food. Other than that the hotel was nice and in a great location for a stopover if traveling to Dawson City from either Anchorage or Fairbanks.

The Westmark Tok is a comparatively large hotel-/motel complex.
We preferred the motel part. The reception was very friendly, and we get a large
room, very clean and comfortable, king bed. On the swing just in front of our door
we dreamed from the last part of our trip, the Top of the World- and the Taylor
Highway. We spend only one night, but it was a good place.

expensive cheap motel (72). but it is clean. just don't get first floor because walls and floor r made of paper and you will hear everything from foot steps to toilet flushing. In fact this us the reason why i am up writing this. Lastly i was surprised there was a second queen bed.

For an out in-the-sticks hotel this was pretty good, real family atmosphere. The decore was a little dated but one of the highlights of my trip was one staff member in the restaurant. They have this young guy Daniel working there (with his mother) who has a habit of tieing up guests who are "unrully" - a great laugh

Since we were traveling with a large tour and in Tok for one night, we did not have a choice of hotel. However, we were pleasantly surprised at the degree of service at this hotel. Although the rooms were small, they were very clean and even had the small coffee maker provided - our bed was very comfortable, we slept well. The dining area was spacious, and the wait staff friendly and accomodating. The food was very good. We ordered from the menu, which offered a good variety, and reasonable prices. Those in our party of 6 enjoyed our meal very much. A person in our tour group had a birthday that day, and the staff came out with complimentary cake, candle, decorations, a certificate of celebration, and free TOK Westmark tee-shirts for her and her spouse. We like the DUM-DUM tree next to the door - help yourself to a DUM-DUM, we did! Don't know what a DUM-DUM is? Look it up! We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay in TOK, AK

While the Westmark was comfortable and offered the traditional all-in-one Holland America package that ensures that those on the bus tour don't venture outside the complex, this hotel did not meet our expectations after staying in excellent non-Westmark accomodations elsewhere in Alaska and the Yukon. We were especially surprised to find housecleaning banging on our door at 8 AM.

Excuses that Tok is remote and therefore one should expect lack of amenities are misguided: Anchorage is only four hours away while Fairbanks is only three. This is not really an isolated outpost.
